Our special 10th anniversary mail art swap has now concluded, and all of the awesome mail art is reaching its destinations. The requirements of the swap were easy: send one piece of Swap-bot themed mail art to your partner. Many of the swap participants were kind enough to send along images of their creations so that I could share them here for everyone to admire.
There were so many great pieces of art that I had to split them up into two blog posts. Check out the first post of images by clicking here.
Mail package and interactive journal by PrairieKittin: ” I made a journal for my partner to use. The mailing label has Swap-bot on the front and back. When you open it, the first thing you see is the “I love Swap-bot” logo. On the title page is the Tree of Life. The next page has an envelope.. but not just *any* envelope! When you open the flap, it says PULL on the inside of the flap. You pull it and a bi-fold note page is attached. The facing page has room to write another journal entry.The last page has another envelope with Zentangles on it. Inside that envelope is a letter.”

ATC and envelope by dodothefairy: “I did an ATC, that is quite symbolic because there is the world, a stamp, the number ten and a set of pencils. It represents the letters that swap-bot let go trough the world since ten years. I decorated the envelope using drawings of imagined stamp.”

Decorated envelope and the included goodies (postcard designed with Swap-bot graphics, patterned paper, and bookmarks) from grandmaroro:
Package mailed by Artistic: “My partner likes postage stamps, so that’s why there are so many, including a couple of vintage ones. My blue watercolor pen was a little too dark on the postcard replica, so I added the blue and orange mats and the curling ribbon. I should have known that “indigo” and “tangerine” wouldn’t be spot on. The packet is big because I included two little “anniversary” gifts wrapped in white tissue paper with blue and orange ribbon.”

The thing I love most about art is seeing how creatively and how uniquely each individual expresses a given theme. I LOVE all of your creations. Thank you so much for swapping on Swap-bot and for celebrating our 10th anniversary with us. xoxo
